Athletes are usually nice people who want to interact with fans in order to show improve their public relations and show that they are human just like anybody else. But a few people want to show up athletes and insult them anonymously. Unfortunately for them, some athletes won’t just be insulted and take it. Here are the 15 greatest mic drops on Twitter of all time.

Many fans believe that LeBron James was the main force behind the Miami Heat. One fan even suggested that James “carried” the Heat. Unfortunately for that fan, Dwyane Wade thinks otherwise.

Frank Kaminsky was just minding his own business when he tweeted about a football game. One fan decided that Kaminsky doesn’t get football. One thing led to another and Kaminsky ended up depicting his Twitter troll as something out of a cartoon.

The Chicago Bears had barely finished beating the Green Bay Packers when Bears right tackle Kyle Long found a tweet (now deleted) from @PatKinnane that said that Long wanted every Bears game on FOX so that his dad (Howie Long) and the other announcers would continue to be his “cheerleaders.” Unfortunately for @PatKinnane, the announcers weren’t the only cheerleaders Long had.

12. Damian Lillard vs. Kevin Green

One person tried to come at Damian Lillard’s ability to perform against great teams. So Lillard responded in kind by calling out that person’s lack of hair.

Another Twitter troll tried denigrating Lillard by saying that he is not Steph Curry. Well, Lillard had to look at the troll’s avatar and “politely” describe his teeth. The troll has since deleted his Twitter avatar.

Fans believe that athletes should just shut up and play while not discussing real issues. Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Cardale Jones sarcastically agrees.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban suggested a couple of years ago that the Los Angeles Lakers should amnesty Kobe Bryant in order to save costs. Bryant would not only respond on the court but off the court as well.

One person decided that Kevin Durant was a choker in the playoffs and that Durant wishes he could delete his failures like he could delete a tweet. Durant would then go on to end this troll quickly.

7. Johnny Manziel vs. Colin Ratz

Many across the nation believed that Johnny Manziel was no fluke when he played for Texas A&M. But one “fan” believed Manziel’s year was a fluke, and didn’t believe in “Johnny Football” himself.

6. Dwight Howard vs. Brittni

Dwight Howard may not have any championships, but that doesn’t mean anybody can attack him recklessly.

Colin Kaepernick declined last season (and continued to do so this season), but he tweeted that would try to get better this past offseason. One person said that what Kaepernick was doing wouldn’t work and so Kaepernick had to remind the person about how little he really mattered to anybody else.

4. Joel Embiid vs. LeBron James

Back when the Philadelphia 76ers still had a shot at winning a game, Joel Embiid tried to recruit LeBron James. James didn’t even respond and that may have been the best decision he has ever made.

Back when everybody wanted the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight, Mayweather and Pacquiao were having issues deciding how the money would be split. Once Pacquiao got knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez, Mayweather believed that Pacquiao would pray for Mayweather to call him back.

Once the fight date was settled, the fight began outside of the ring. Pacquiao made commercials and Mayweather made a shirt with himself painted in the Philippines’ colors. Since Pacquiao is from the Phillipines, Pacquiao saw the gesture by Mayweather as a sign that Mayweather wanted to join Manny’s team.

It’s natural for big men who go for block shots to get dunked on every now and then. But one Twitter person tried to troll Rudy Gobert and make it seem worse than it was. Gobert would then crush this troll the same way Gobert got crushed when he was dunked on. The troll’s likeness to a Dragon Ball Z character didn’t help either.
